das Verwundetenabzeichen (Wound Badges) Real or Fake??

Article about: I see. Must be my eyes! Appreciate your patience with my amateur status on wound badges.

    Default das Verwundetenabzeichen (Wound Badges) Real or Fake??

    These are two wound badges I picked up at an auction for a few dozen bucks (first wound badges I ever bought so I took a chance.) One is a hollow back with no markings. The other is slid with maker marking "L22." How did I do? Real or fake? Let me know if you need better pics.

    Thanks fellas!

    The Swaz look a little off to me, but lets see what the other members think.....

    I don't like the Silver L/22. Too many small differences. The swaz looks slightly domed, the bow has very poor detailing and the catch is not as it should be. William

    The black one seems ok, but the pictures are out of focus - even when enlarged........
    Regards,

    Did you try clicking on them to enlarge them? I've been stuck with my little not so great camera as my better half has run off and borrowed the thousand dollar camera!

    Yes, but even when enlarged there is some camera shake which has blurred the images.
    The black grade appears to be a good tombac/brass..........

    From the above shot that Eric has posted, I can see the maker mark
    is raised, and the material is definitely zinc.........

    I can see where the distortion is in the pics. The L22 on mine is raised. The hinge and catch appear identical to the one Eric posted. I will get some better pics for you and post them. Thanks for the help so far.

    Not the same look closer around the catch and pin hinge that is my point hope I am wrong.
